ABOUT OUTRIGHT

This colorway was dyed using a technique we call 'infusing'. We infuse parts of the yarn with a specific colorway and move on to the next color. That way we keep the specific color we aimed for (in this case for instance the berry purple and blues) without them bleeding into each other too much. The end result is a variegated yarn that holds a lot of individual colors.



This colorway is based on the Bi flag

Florida-based LGBTQ activist Michael Page created the Bisexual Flag in 1998, in order to increase the visibility of bisexual individuals—who are attracted to two genders—in both the LGBTQ community and society as a whole. The pink represents attraction to those of the same gender identity, while the blue stands for attraction to people who identify as a different gender. The purple stripe in the middle symbolizes attraction to two genders.

Our 2021 Pride colorways are based on some of the colorful flags that make up the LGBTQI+ rainbow.

The nylon in this base is biodegradable. It does not degrade until it reaches the garbage processing facility and special enzymes and micro-organisms are added to the waste. These break down the biodegradable nylon in the course of 3 years instead of the 40 years it takes most man-made fibers to be broken down.

BIOSOCK

This smooth 4-threaded fingering weight yarn base is a perfect mash up between the softness of merino wool and the longevity of nylon, with a biodegradable twist. It knits up perfectly for garments and other next-to-skin soft items. Socks, hats, sweaters, blankets... BIOSOCK can handle it all. BIOSOCK takes dye vividly, is soft, smooth and a delight to work with.

QUANTITY DISCOUNTS


All purchases of 5 skeins or more are eligible for a 5% discount using discount code: SIZEUP

As a fat fabulous creature, I (Aiden) know how hard it can be to source enough yarn to make myself a sweater. What takes the 'average' person 4 - 5 skeins, takes me at least 6 and usually around 8 skeins. (I'm between a 134 cm / 54 inch torso circumference).
It makes knitting or crocheting garments with hand dyed yarn a pretty costly adventure, which is why I am now offering discounts for yarn quantities that are above average.

This discount applies to all of our hand dyed yarns (that are not on sale), and can be combined between bases and colorways. You could make that top that uses a bajillion colors, or just pick the skeins for a single color project.

I'm not plus size. Can I use these discount codes?
Yes!
We will not police purchases and I will not exclude people from this discount based on their size. Hell, I encourage everyone who wants to use these codes for their 5+ skein purchases to use it. The economy is tight enough as it is and society already does enough excluding, no need for me to tack on some more.
